    how do you achieve the speckled faux finish on this bedroom side chest...looks like it was glazed, maybe, and flicked with color...LOVE the look

    Do you paint all the way inside where the drawers are or just around the inside perimeter where you slide them in and out and do you paint the back?

      The pictures show she did not. If the drawers slide well, I would leave as is...less paint & work needed. Same with the back unless it were exposed or perhaps using the back surface to practice technique of the exposed areas.
